May i ask a noob question, why is the Sembawang BTO so low ratio, low until unbelievable... Any major issues with it? I am going for it since it is near my gf parents' house there.... Or are most ppl attracted by the sobf exercise?
I feel that they launched 3 sites together. That causes the huge delta between flat supply and application rate.
If they only launch 1 site. I believe the application rate you will see is >50% of flat supply.

location wise its not outstanding... i drove to see the site already. its really an empty plot of land with no amenities... need to travel out.

But HDB did mention will build some amenities in that area if i am not wrong with its own supermarket, eating house, restaurants and shops, so you can shop and enjoy a meal close to home. A child care centre, an education centre and a Residents’ Committee Centre will also be located within the development. At least that is what is written over at the hdb webpage...

the stalls wun open overnight... unless a food court chain comes along to open there.

i believe initially it will be tough for ppl staying there, and confirm u need to travel out to sembawang or yishun to shop and eat.

Go ahead with project, wait 1/2 year later then put on sobf, mark up the pricing, limit those bto sites = profit..

Ppl who happen to be looking at north side will probably just go for it..
